Item description for Doubting Thomas by Andrew Massey & Greg White...
It is very hot out, and the sun is shining brightly. We could get overheated and sunburned. The big, mean dog next door might chase us. Not only that, said Thomas, but the park can be pretty dangerous. Meet Doubting Thomas, a young boy whose fear keeps him indoors and away from fun. Although Thomas parents encourage him to be brave and adventurous, Thomas finds excuse after excuse to stay at home. Reluctantly agreeing to an afternoon at the park, Thomas watches from the safety of a park bench as his only friend, Jimmy, flies higher and higher on the swing set. When Jimmy takes a tumble, Thomas must find it in himself to face his fears and get some help. With Gods help, can Doubting Thomas overcome his fears and help his friend? Doubting Thomas, by author Andrew Massey, encourages children to be courageous and, with Gods help, get off the park bench and start having fun!
